The UMHB Conservatory of Music and Department of Music will host the annual UMHB MUSIC FESTIVAL for Instrumental Ensembles on Thursday, May 10, 2018 and for Choirs on Thursday, May (TBA), 2018. This festival will take place on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor campus in the Sue & Frank Mayborn Performing Arts Center (Baugh Performance Hall).
Each ensemble will receive:
- comments from the panel of four adjudicators (no rating unless requested),
- a recording (available for instrumental ensembles only), and
- will be awarded a participation trophy.
The judging panel will consist of music educators that have taught on all levels. Their only goal is to aid you in getting feedback to improve your ensemble.
After your ensemble performs, one of the three to four judges will clinic the ensemble while they remain on stage. This judge will not have been writing comments, only listening and making notes to use in speaking to your ensemble so he can be focused on helping your ensemble.
Each ensemble will warm-up, perform, and receive their clinic all in one location (Baugh Performance Hall).
All performances will be open to the general public.
